Grounds for applying for an extension
The onus rests on students to comply with timelines for completing and submitting assessments, and this is part of the good management and performance skills we are seeking to support students to develop through the educational process. It is acknowledged that students need to apply for extensions to manage and balance work, study and other commitments. Therefore, extensions may be negotiated. Students are required to adhere to the University of Canberra extension application policy and guidelines to ensure equity and administrative transparency.
For these reasons, you need to establish genuine circumstances for an extension to be granted. You will need to supply documentary evidence to establish the genuine nature of your circumstances.
Process for applying for an extension:
Students are advised to liaise directly with their Unit Convenor for requests for extension. Requests for extension should be emailed to the Unit Convenor or approved delegate, although there may be circumstances where Inclusion & Welfare will liaise on behalf of the student.
Requests for extensions should be made via emailed at least 5 days prior to the assignment due date.
The Unit Convenor, or approved delegate, will inform the student of the outcome of their request. Where the Unit Convenor, or approved delegate, does not approve the assignment extension request, the student may seek consultation with Inclusion & Welfare. If considered appropriate, Inclusion & Welfare will liaise with the relevant Academic staff member, following consultation with the student.

Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
This Unit will be conducted online. The Unit convener welcomes student engagement by email or the CANVAS discussion forum to co-construct meaningful learning.
